Thought we’d bring up this item from the New York Observer about a “Democrats for McCain” fundraiser in Brooklyn Heights earlier this week. That story and the amazing NY1 video after the jump:
New York Observer: A Democrat for McCain: An interesting tidbit about the host of tonight’s Brooklyn Heights fund-raiser, “Democrats for John McCain.” It’s being put on by Roberta Weisbrod, a Democrat, who is married to a federal Judge David Trager, a Republican. As Gatemouth noted earlier, Trager was one of the few Republicans Bill Clinton appointed to the federal bench. Trager has seen a number of notable cases, including the case against Lemrick Nelson, who was convicted of violating the civil rights of a Hasidic student who was killed during the Crown Heights riots in 1991. He later imposed the maximum sentence. More recently, in 2006, Trager threw out a suit filed by a Syrian-born Canadian who said he was detained without by the U.S. government due process at J.F.K. Airport and then shipped to Syria, where he was tortured.
